Hi Moose, It says "Initialize wait to shift" i read online its say change the 12v battery and I did but not with AGM battery. Would that make a diiferance?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 25 days ago.

When trying to start will it at least produce a click noise?

Do the electronics inside the car work?

Hvae you done any of the diag steps for this car yet?

Customer: replied 25 days ago.
It's does not make a starter clicking sound. Everything works all electronics. And I just used my scan tool and give me those codes
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 24 days ago.

Thanks,

Of all of your codes the only one related to getting the vehicle to crank is this one. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/1682.pdf

Can you do those tests and report back?

.

Thanks for letting me help you & for leaving me a ~5 STAR EXCELLENT~rating when ready. Rating results in the website paying me from the question fee you have already paid. Although I appreciate customers saying "Thank You" that alone does not result in me being compensated if you were pleased.

Thanks Chris

Just a little confused what exactly you would like me to check?
Customer: replied 24 days ago.
Checking a fuse in the fuse box? Under the hood? Thanks
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 24 days ago.

Diagnosing this is going to be far more difficult than replacing a fuse. Since your not able to perform the tests outlined at the bottom of the file I sent. I do not feel like this is a concern I am going to be able to help you address. I will remove myself from this post and let another try to help you.
